Don't have money to spareplease let me know.
Do have more good books than you need
We've tested online sales through a bookstore in Oregon and it works well; you type in the book's ISBN, accept or reject the price offered and, when you're done listing, the store provides a pre-paid shipping label via e-mail or URL. You entail zero costs and the listing and packing process takes just a few minutes. It's extremely simple and reliable to use.
Alone, we are unlikely to raise a huge pot of money but together, I think we could make enough to help fund a scholarship or two.
Note that the store has high standards and, like most bookstores, offers very low prices*. But if you or your newsroom colleagues have been hoarding quality books, including textbooks, and want to spend a few minutes helping a good cause, send an e-mail and we could get you started.
*This is what we raised in our first test shipment last week.
